HP ColorPro

This is a classic Pen Plotter from the 1980's It appears to be amazingly resilient.

Its simular to a normal printer in that it moves the paper and the printhead. The difference being the printhead is a pen that has been selected from a carousel containing 8 pens.

Another nifty feature is using the controls on the right of the plotter it is possible to use it to digitise information and to manually plot. HP ColorPro HP ColorPro Plotting The above image shows a plot in progress.
